London has an immensely rich cultural heritage. England and America share political and historical roots that stretch back to the Magna Carta. London is a city of contrasts where modern office buildings overlook Victorian palaces, medieval fortresses and Georgian town houses. The population is as diverse as the architecture. Londoners come from all parts of the globe and share a cosmopolitan life of dress, customs, cuisine and culture. More than 60 theaters provide opportunities for students to experience live, professional productions. Four major symphony orchestras reside in London. Leading ballet, contemporary dance and touring companies all perform in London, a city resplendent with concert halls and music festivals. London offers an unparalleled range of live rock and music performances. Historic galleries and museums provide opportunities to view many of the world’s artistic masterpieces. London is a city of theatre companies, from the National Shakespeare and Royal Shakespeare companies to the street entertainers in the parks and tube stations.
